About this Plan

Cosmic Wind. Radio control scale Goodyear racer model. Sterling kit # FS11-695.

Quote: "...plans show their age, but are still in pretty good shape. First up is the 34" 1/2A Cosmic Wind, for single channel or Galloping Ghost radio control and .049, or control line with up to a .15. Kit is circa 1959-1960, as it makes reference to a Model Airplane News article from 1958 for details on the GG system. With today's equipment, it could be built with little or no dihedral, ailerons, and full 4-channel control, and with an .074-.10 would make a fast aerobatic pylon racer. I originally built one as control line with an .09; it wasn't slow! I currently have one complete kit and the plans, decals, landing gear, hardware and plastic parts of another."

Hello Steve, this is balogh from Budapest, Hungary. I am a COX Engine Forum member and have just completed the build on a beautiful classic model, the Cosmic Wind, for R/C use. You may want to see the post on CEF with some photos here: www.coxengineforum.com/t1015...

Notes

* Credit field

The Credit field in the Outerzone database is designed to recognise and credit the hard work done in scanning and digitally cleaning these vintage and old timer model aircraft plans to get them into a usable format. Currently, it is also used to credit people simply for uploading the plan to a forum on the internet. Which is not quite the same thing. This will change soon. Probably.

Scaling

This model plan (like all plans on Outerzone) is supposedly scaled correctly and supposedly will print out nicely at the right size. But that doesn't always happen. If you are about to start building a model plane using this free plan, you are strongly advised to check the scaling very, very carefully before cutting any balsa wood.
